Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.

Put an extra $50 in the donation box, that seems to help. Just kidding. If you really want to draw you may need to look into some of the less popular units, archery or muzzle loader tags and or an antler less tag. I see you're from AZ so I'm assuming that it where you are putting in for and I've noticed that first time applicants especially kids, draw a fair amount of tags. I believe AZ also offers special youth tags/hunts, I know they do for deer but not sure about elk. And if you want a good tag like unit 9 or 10 start applying now and in a couple years you'll eventually draw it.

Buy the detailed statistics book published by AZ G&F. If you understand statistical data, you can learn a lot from this book. You'll find that the unit with the most tags is not always the easiest unit to draw......and there's several "non-hyped" units where decent bulls are taken annually.

I've drawn four non-resident bull elk tags in 20 years.......a five year average. Not bad for a non-resident. None of my hunts occurred in the popular "big bull" units, yet I had a great time hunting P&Y caliber bulls. It all comes down to what you want to hunt and understanding statistics. Good luck in the draw.

I agree, do not apply to "Hype" units. A little research goes a long way.
